And what does a barrel look like?

Varnam points out that both George Galloway and Natwar Singh have made the same ludicrous statement that they have never seen a barrel of oil in their lives, thus implying that they had nothing to do with illegal oil deals with Saddam Hussein's government.

It beats me what connection seeing barrels of oil can have with trading in oil. No one is alleging that they transported those barrels of oil themselves, two bitter old men lifting barrel after barrel under the hot desert sun. Such fools they take us for.
